It’s no secret that Kanye West‘s Twitter account is the place to go to find a range of polarizing statements to life musings and of course, cryptic reveals. Today, he announced that he will open this season of Saturday Night Live as the musical guest alongside host Adam Driver by posting a captionless photo. But instead of listing “Kanye West,” the photo includes “Yandhi” alongside Driver’s name.

Immediately following, Ye posted another mysterious photo, this time, a photo of a CD. Fans immediately connected the dots, noting the similar play on words “Yandhi” has to Gandhi, as the album Yeezus did to Jesus, as well as the undeniable similarity to the album art on the 2013 release. Hours later, West took to Instagram to make the announcement official, posting that same CD image with “YANDHI 9 29 18.”

West recently released “I Love It” featuring Lil Pump, following a string of production credits on the Wyoming Sessions albums, including his own album ye and Kids See Ghosts alongside Kid Cudi earlier in 2018,
